9 Reasons I Am In Love With Summer
Alley Avery

Summer has always been one of the most enjoyable seasons to me. Summer embodies happiness, warmth, freedom, and relaxation. Following is a list (not extensive) of the top reasons I claim summer as my favorite:

1. Sunshine

Sun warming up your skin. Wearing sunglasses. Lightened hair. Sun kissed complexion. Happiness.

2. Fires During Warm Nights

Sitting in the back lawn, a fire roaring in the fire pit, and fireflies flickering around the yard. Roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. Deep and satisfying conversations. Returning to the house with clothes and hair retaining the smell of the fire.

3. Tan Lines

Something satisfying when lifting up the sleeve of a t-shirt to find a line dividing recently tanned skin from not. Needing multiple differently styled swimsuits to even out tan lines. Gasping at the realization of how light your skin was during the winter months.

4. Grilling Out

One of the best parts of summer and warmer weather. Grilling hamburgers, hot dogs, fish, kababs, and vegetables. The smell of the grill filtering through the open windows into the house. Driving by a house that is grilling and smelling the deliciousness that makes your own mouth water.

5. Water Time

Great pleasure of submerging in cool water and out of the summer heat. Whether be a pool, ocean, lake, or creek. Relaxation and enjoyment. Making memories with others. Serenity time.

6. Ice Cream Shops

Ice cream parlors open. Cooling off with an ice cream cone. Eating fast so frozen treat won't completely melt in the heat. Ice cream becoming part of meals.

7. Driving with the Windows Down

All windows down. Long hair tied up. Music loud. Wind whipping through the car but, it’s warm to the touch. Sunroof open. Arm out the window. Hand waving through the air. Can’t help but to smile.

8. Sitting/Eating Outside

Enjoying meals on the back porch. Having sunshine as company while eating. Cool breeze of summer. Sounds of nature—the sounds of birds chirping, animals walking, and leafs rustling. Sunshine warms your back. Sitting in the green grass.

9. Long Days of Light

Sun rises early and sets late. Days are a majority of light. More time spent outside. More lit minutes of the day to be spent with family, friends, and in enjoyment.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
